Delicous Spoonfuls is coming!

29 Nov

Have you heard about Delicious Spoonfuls?  My husband Robert Gottesman and I are pooling our knowledge and experience to start an ice cream bar and cafe that will be employing about 75/80% of its staff by the people that have Special Needs. We have the most experience with Down Syndrome (Do you know our son Adir Gottesman?) and ASD/Autism.

We have been doing research, planning our menu and budget and designing our dream kitchen for the cafe.  We need your help!

We are looking for fundraisers, event planners and anyone interested in being a part of Delicious Spoonfuls!Take a look at our basic website along with our GoFundMe page.  We are looking for a location in North Broward County, florida, near our current home in Boca Raton, Florida

While  we get our no-profit status set up and our new logo designed, help is still needed

Check out these sites and share the heck out of them to help get the word out!

Why I Love Cooking for My Clients

25 Jul

In a world where most jobs have us as “cogs in a wheel” working for low wages, without sight of a final goal for the company or ourselves.

Instead, as a Personal Chef I speak to people about what food means to eeds that would determine the choices of foods we will preparethem.  Is it simply for nourishment?  Must it be a work of art for them to enjoy it?  Are there specific dietary n

Morrocan chickpea stew

5 Aug

Morrocan chickpea stew

Sautée onion , garlic, carrots, celery. Add cumin, cinnamon, and pepper . Add 8 ounces soaked garbanzo beans and sweet potato along with 4 cups broth or water . Bring to boil, cover and simmer for one hour. Add 2/4 cup of tomato sauce and salt. serve with brown rice

I wanted to be more specific with this recipe which I made again. I had gotten part of the recipe on the package of dried beans and adapted some of the additions based on what I had in my pantry.

Soak half a pound of dried garbanzo beans/chick peas for an hour or more and drain. In a Dutch oven add a Tbsp. of olive oil or other vegetable oil to a pan, Add 1 large onion (sliced or diced), 2 to 4 cloves garlic, a few sliced carrots and celery ribs and saute on medium . As it cooks add 2 tsp. cumin, 1tsp cinnamon, black pepper, and add 4 cups of broth or water (By the way, don’t add the salt until the beans are soft). Cook for about one hour until the beans are soft . Add salt to taste. Add one peeled and diced sweet potato. when the potatoes are cooked through enjoy!
Vegan unless you used chicken broth.
Let me know when you try it.

Passover Prep. One day at a time

18 Mar

From 2 years ago. this bears repeating.
I am putting together recipes for a client (seder for 14), and my own family (two seder for 3 to 7 people.0

Since my client wants brisket, poached salmon for 5 , gefilte fish, brownies (no nuts!) and many of the usual side dishes, i am checking for the best possible recipes. I also have to plan on containers for each of us, foil pans, heavy duty foil(LOTS OF IT) for the counters as well as wrapping food for the client, parchment paper, special dish soap, a new salt, pepper, sugar, paprika, cinnamon etc.
So many of these staples need to be kosher for passover, extremely detailed laws concerning this….

Got recipes and most of shopping list together, but it is too early to shop. Need to be rid of all chametz. Such a challenge.
More on chametz tomorrow
